Witnessing these structures brings the consequences of WWII to life. I appreciate and am touched by the painstaking efforts that were required to restore these works of art for the ages - as well as those measures that are taken today.

The chapel is beautiful but 8€ to watch a video and then a 10 minute group visit cut short by the bell is not really acceptable.

Well, Giotto and his paintings. Its a must to see in Padova. Well organized tourist guide and visiting system. There is a short video commentar before entering the Chapel and after that you have max 15-20 minutes to see the paintings. Its a very short time so you can not really enjoy or observe it as much as you want... More

Unless you are an expert on frescoes and can understand and fully appreciate the techniques Giotto introduced in his time, an average folk may not rate it as highly as the experts. My personal consideration on this is: I wish Italy would protect all the art work it possesses with the same care and attention they show for this chapel.

You are allowed only a very brief 15 minute visit, in a small chapel containing arguably some of the greatest artistic masterpieces in the world. The genius and talent of giotto is unforgettable.

There are timed visits to the Scrovegni Chapel as you have to go through the 'air lock'. I missed my time slot but I was asked to wait for the half an hour and it was worth the wait. The Giotto frescoes are fantastic. This is a combined visit with the Musei Civici agli Eremitani which I also enjoyed.

All tickets sold out in advance for the day we were there and when we asked about the following day we were grunted at and given a piece of paper with a phone number on.

This is a MUST see in Pauda. Do book in advance and you can collect your tickets in the Civic Museum on the day you visit. Hard to find the entrance to the Chapel walk around the building and the entrance is from the small square. You must check in your bag etc but small plastic bags are provided and... More
